Class Project 2

CS 301: Assembly Language Programming Assignment, Dr. Lawlor

At this point in the class, you hopefully know enough assembly language to actually use it to solve problems, so I'd like you to use it to solve a problem you're interested in.

From the syllabus, each of the two course projects is 15% of your course grade, so it should have some pretty good stuff.  Conversely, the total end-to-end time for the project is only a few weeks, so keep it manageable!

On November 23, I'd like your rough draft code, which should work and do most of what you want, but not necessarily do everything you want to do, or be fully polished or tuned. 

The presentation is a very short, 5-minute presentation in class on December 5-9.   Your presentation should clearly describe WHO you are, WHAT you did, HOW you did it, and WHY you chose to do it that way.  Bring a laptop to project your code, demo, slides, and/or figures, or email me your presentation materials the day before, if you'd like to present from my laptop.

The final code should be fully debugged, polished, tuned, commented, and include at least a short README explaining what it is, and what its results mean.  Style and clean code count!  Due Wednesday, December 14.  (This is scheduled after the presentation, so you can follow any suggestions or ideas you get during the presentation.)

Your final project grade is a multiplicative product of three factors:

Typical grade breakdown: project grade = 25% rough draft + 25% presentation + 50% final code

Or pick your own topic!  As long as it's related to assembly language, binary code, it's OK!
